The purpose of this project is to produce at least the next 3 North Pole Santa Coins. The stretch goal is to product an additional 3 coins. The art for these coins is presented below.The first three new coins will be the North Pole Village, First Responders, and the Making Music coins.

I have already created six North Pole Santa Coins and use them to foster the tradition of giving. Many years ago, I created the "Santa Coins" to give to children that were brave enough to talk to Santa. Once I started gifting the coins to children, I learned a very important lesson. The coins were not only a great reward for being brave, they were also a great ice breaker for many of the shy children. There have been many instances of children hiding behind their parents or standing off to the side and too shy to talk to Santa, but when they see the Santa Coin, they will approach me to pick out their coin and talk to me.

The uses for the Santa coins has expanded over the years and the types of Santa coins has also increased. I participate in many charitable events and many endurance events, like marathons and walks, as Santa Claus. During these events I give out Santa coins to children and adults at appropriate times. Because I have many partners in these events, I believe they also should have coins to give out and that the coin should be appropriate to their role. This lead to the creation of the North Pole Princess coin, the Mrs. Claus coin, the North Pole Elf coin and the Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer coin.

I gift over 1,000 coins a year to excited children and adults. Up until now and with the help of the Hoffman mint, I have been able to finance all of the Santa Coins. Unfortunately I can no longer afford to do so. I have created the art for the next 6 Santa Coins. These coins are the First Responder coin, The North Pole Village coin, the Making Music coin, the Christmas Tree coin, the Baking Cookies coin, and the Snowman Parade coin.

The Hoffman mint has reviewed the art and helped reduce the cost of producing the coins. So, now it is up to us to provide the needed financing to complete the work. Please be generous in backing this project.

Risks and challenges

The greatest risk to producing the coins is developing art that can not be used to mint a coin. To mitigate this risk, I have submitted all six designs to the mint and they have verified that they can be used to create a coin.
